The Radeon 9600 was a graphics card by ATI, launched in October 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the RV350 graphics processor, in its RV350 LE variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0. The RV350 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 76 mm² and 60 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 vertex shaders, 4 texture mapping units and 4 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). ATI has placed 64 MB DDR memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 324 MHz, memory is running at 189 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the ATI Radeon 9600 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 12 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Radeon 9600 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
